Regular DS To Be Phased Out After Summer

During his appearance on Game Heads, a Spike TV video game show which airs in the US of A Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Reggie Fils-Aime spoke on many a subject. We have already discussed him more or less confirming the delay of Zelda to this fall but Reggie also mentioned the “heavy” DS model during the interview. Infact Fils-Aime confirmed that the current DS model will begin the process of be phased out sometime between August and September of this year. This will leave the market open exclusively for the DS Lite which is thought to revive a price drop just as the old DS drops of the radar.
